Indeed.

Looks like a calibrated increase in new citizens (& corresponding PR's to fill the candidate pool) to offset the continuous decrease in TFR.

PR mix may vary and resident population size may increase, but ethnic mix of citizen population shows an amazing stability over time.

Lastest direct from SingStats:

PR level stays the same but if you look at number of SC it has grown more than the birth date. You can infer about 25k to 30k PR approval per year. Mostly from Chinese race as the ratio of Chinese has grown slightly.

The consistent ethnic mix is an indication (obviously) that the Singapore population is by design and not evolutionary circumstance, consistent with most other aspects of Singapore.

Then again, the country's raison d'être in modern times have always been as a global trading post, and so it shall remain - so continuing to run it as a business seems prudent.

The biggest demographic challenge seems to be the ageing population - rightly so, the government would be keen to add younger, well educated new citizens into its citizen population. Noone wants to end up like Japan.

No Japan is a nightmare although if they would drop their hatred of none Japanese it could become a premier immigration destination and attract the brightest/best/richest as it's a beautiful country.
